Well, we are 3 weeks into this Loose it Bitches competition and I have yet to post how I have been doing. So I am going to get past my frustrations and give it to you straight.
If you can remember, I actually started the week before New Years so that I wouldn’t be considered a resolution-er. So I have really been at it for about 5 weeks now. I have been going to the gym at least 5 times a week, doing 50 minutes of pretty intense cardio.( at least I consider it intense when I can’t open my eyes at the end because sweat is pouring down my face and my knees are so wobbly that I can barley stand). When I am finished wringing myself out, I lift weights, doing two body parts a day. So I will do back and bi’s one day, chest and tri’s the next, legs the next day and shoulders and ab’s the last day and then start all over. I give myself 2 days a week off so that my muscles are refreshed and ready to go for the next round. I have not slacked at all and I feel good about getting back to the gym and rejuvenating my lost muscle.
How is the dieting part going you asked?
Well, for the most part I have been tracking every little morsel that goes into my mouth on My Fitness Pal. I even log the not so good cookie that I sneak every now and then and my nightly glass of vino. When I calculate my exercise in, I am usually under my daily caloric intake. Now, I am not saying that in the last 5 weeks that I haven’t had a cheat day or 2, but on the whole, I have been really good. Well except that 1 night with Mindy. It was bad! Being an old gym rat, I know that you should have cheat meals. They help shock your body and not to mention, you need it so that you don’t binge.
SO WHY THE HELL HAVEN’T I LOST EVEN 1LB.
I know the tracker on my blog says 4lbs, but that is because 1 morning I weighed in 4lbs light and in my elation, immediately went to My Fitness Pal and logged it in, to find out the next day that those measly 4 little pounds reappeared, and have stayed.
I was too ashamed to go back and correct my scales horrible error, so now I just look at my little bloggy lie daily wishing it would come true and those ponds would just go away for real.
I know that I am almost 40 and my metabolism is not what it used to be, but come on!
So, I broke down and bought the PX90 system that I have heard amazing things about. I have been told that if that doesn’t get the lbs off, nothing will. I hear it is excruciating and I am scared! I really don’t want to get my ass kicked by a cd.
So wish me luck please, I think I am going to need it.
